Written answers (Question to Jobs)

I have supplied the details as requested in tabular form from 2006 to end of 2012 in relation to the Labour Court. The Labour Relations Commission (LRC) is not in a position to compile the requested information within the above timeframe; however, it has undertaken to provide this information and I will revert to you shortly when I have received this information from the LRC.
